The latest in our series of YouTube videos looking at common skin complaints and suitable treatments for every decade.
This time, Dr John Quinn looks at common skin complaints and potential treatments for those in their 40s.
Skin Concerns for the Over 40s
Common issues for those in their 40s include:
Fine lines and wrinkles in the upper part of the face
Loss of volume in the face
Uneven skin tone and dun damage
Suggested Skin Treatments
Fine lines and wrinkles
Anti-wrinkle injections (i.e. Botox) are highly effective at relaxing the muscles, which introduces a softening of the wrinkles that sit on top of the muscles.
Botox is the most popular anti-ageing treatment worldwide as the results it produces are so helpful. It certainly doesn’t have to look ‘frozen’ or artificial. Dr John Quinn is known for his natural-looking approach to non-surgical treatments.
Loss of volume
Many patients in their 40s complain about is a loss of volume in the face, where the youthful roundness dissipates with age. This is especially pronounced where they have lost weight. Issues include:
blunting of the jawline
Dermal fillers are a very effective treatment here. They can be used to plump out the skin by subtly adding volume within the skin for a softer and smoother finish.
Skin tone and sun damage
Laser procedures are a popular choice to improve uneven skin tone and tackle sun damage and thread veins.
Little and Often
Dr John Quinn gives the following advice:
The approach is little and often.
Patients can be seen fairly frequently for little tweaks so that friends and family think they look well rather than that they’ve had work done.
Dr John Quinn explains the skin challenges that face those in their 40’s and suggests suitable and popular treatments to tackle the issues as they arise.
